Kathy was a Christian, believing in the Lord as her Savior. She had lived in the St. Clair area for over twenty years. For most of her working years, she was employed by Laid Law Bus Lines as a bus driver for handicapped children, retiring after fifteen years of service. She loved the outdoors and enjoyed many pastimes and interests during her life. Riding and raising horses and dogs was her passion and she was a member of the St. Clair Saddle Club in St. Clair. Above all else, she was a home maker and nothing made her happier than the time spent with Charlie and her children and grandchildren. The love and wonderful memories created will be cherished forever.
A devoted and loving wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, sister-in-law, aunt and friend, she will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew and loved her.
